>> this is really a great opportunity to express to you my appreciation for the america's cup, for deciding to come into san francisco to have this 34th race. the economic impact to the city is incredible. we estimate there will be $1 billion spent by everybody involved throughout the bay area as a result of this race. 8000 jobs have been this 34th
12:50pm
race. , to hospitality, all the hotels, all the activities that you see around this waterway. it is an incredible infusion of economic activity for our bay area. i am also very excited -- the world series races -- as you know, i got to be on the ac 45 vote last week. i just want to let you know, i just graduated from a tire tube to an ac 45. that was a wonderful experience. that was just on one boat by itself going at top-notch creatm construction speed, getting a good to experience the teamwork that happens. i can only imagine how the teams and 11 votes that will be in the races today will practice the rest of the week will have to coordinate a long haul of the balancing of the wind, the waves along the day when they are competing against each other. i am very happy to welcome all of you to the beginning of this race. it is expected to be an exciting part. i can feel it already.
12:51pm
i think our audience, as you said, getting into the details and the technology involved, along with the team work and the race itself, will be incredibly great for theppreciate. i want to think the organizing committee, particularly the racing committee and steve partly and ian murray for their wonderful collaboration with the city. they have been working with us for 18 months, negotiating from permits to the race to the details and with all the difference to the agency's credit to the coast guard and the safety of the racers themselves and the audiences along the water and waterfront. i also want to thank the rec and park commission president, head of the organizing committee, that is mark buell and carry mcclellan, for their excellent work for helping to lead the city side of it.
12:52pm

12:53pm
>> i tried to think about this room as the dream room, where we dream and bring some of those dreams to life. i feel very blessed that i have been able to spend the last 31 years of my life doing it my way, thinking about things better interesting to me, and then pursuing them. there are a lot of different artists that come here to work, mostly doing aerial work. kindred spirits, so to speak. there is a circus company that i have been fortunate enough to work with the last couple of years. i use elements of dance and choreography and combine that with theater techniques. a lot of the work is content- based, has a strong narrative.
12:54pm
the dancers have more of a theatrical feel. i think we are best known for our specific work. in the last 15 years, spending a lot of time focusing on issues that affect us and are related to the african-american experience, here in the united states. i had heard of marcus shelby and had been in join his work but never had the opportunity to meet him. we were brought together by the equal justice society specifically for this project. we were charged with beginning work. marquez and i spent a lot of time addressing our own position on the death penalty, our experiences with people who
12:55pm
had been incarcerated, family members, friends of friends. pulling our information. beyond that, we did our own research. to create a picture that resonated with humanity. it is the shape of a house. in this context, it is also small and acts like a cell. i thought that was an interesting play on how these people make these adjustments, half to create home. what is home for these people? the home is their cell. people talk a lot about noise -- very noisy in prisons. that is interesting to me. looking at the communication
12:56pm
level, the rise of frustration of being caged, wondering, where does redemption fit into the equation here? [singing] i think both of us really believe the death penalty is wrong, and is flawed for many reasons. the list is as long as my arm -- about several others. we feel this is important for both of us, personally, to participate in the debate of this issue in a way that we can
12:57pm
help people frame it for a conversation.
